I don't see a need to invent a new option name.

I would say it's OK to have --search options with slightly different
semantics for different subcommands. Their semantics just shouldn't
be entirely different. If one matches case-sensitively and the other
does not, I would say that's too different. But I don't think we
need to be consistent about implicit *-globbing rules.

So having 'svn list --search' do what you describe above as
'svn list --search-glob' would be entirely acceptable to me.
